Arsene Wenger is reportedly willing to sell Alexis Sanchez to Premier League rivals Manchester City if two main conditions are met (via The Metro).
It’s looking like it will be the biggest transfer story of the summer and there still so many possibilities over where Alexis Sanchez will be playing his football next season.
The Chilean was by far Arsenal’s best player last season but with just twelve months on his contract and no Champions League football at the Emirates next season, there are growing fears that he will look to leave North London.
Sanchez has been linked with Bayern Munich and PSG in the past but more recently, Manchester City have been strongly linked with the forward.
While Wenger is still determined to keep hold of his frontman, Marca are reporting that the Frenchman would be willing to let Sanchez go if two main conditions are met.
The Spanish publication reports that firstly, Alexis Sanchez will personally need to push through a move and that secondly, Arsene Wenger will be able to sign a player of similar quality as a replacement.

- Arsenal eye player Lionel Messi claimed to be ‘similar to Xavi’
- Arsenal urged to buy ‘January transfer window bargain’ for £6m
It’s unclear whether or not these two conditions will be met but surely it’s every Arsenal fan’s worst nightmare. The Gunners have a history of selling top players to their rivals but many hoped those transfers were a thing of the past.
